Former Student

I was at an event called "Apartment Outreach" where teachers and volunteers from our school visit apartment complexes for a night of fun and education. We get to meet parents and see current and former students. I ran into Pigeon--that's his last name, he is in 5th grade, but goes to a different school down the street.

PIGEON: If I was at y'alls school, I would be the fastest kid there.
MR. BOWERS: Well, Donovan here is pretty fast, and he's in 5th grade.
DONAVAN: I'm second fastest in the school.
MR. BOWERS: OK, Donovan, you can race Pigeon.
DONOVAN: Nah, I don't feel like it.
MR. BOWERS: OK...well...Pigeon, you just go run around, and we'll tell you if you're the fastest.
PIGEON: Get outta here!
